I came into this lesson with no knowledge of design principles, and a mild level of curiosity. I left this lesson feeling inspired, and even more curious about design and art in general than I had ever expected! Jaja is so easy to talk to, she's patient and open minded, and she doesn't push too hard. She works with you at your level and it was really nice, informative, and inspirational to take a lesson with her. I would 100% recommend this lesson to everyone, even the skeptics about art.

I had a great level-check with Jaja. She is a lot of fun! I am looking forward to more lessons.

I studyed about positive/negative space in this lesson. She explained me what the positive/negative space is with videos and lots of references. It was really intensive and brain storming thus I learned deeply about this theme. Of course I need review, working on more practice and assignments, seeing more and more masterpieces and try to analyze the artworks by myself for further understanding just like she led me do that in this class.
Regarding this class, I'm very grateful for her to finding another tool instead of Skype so that we could do this lesson, in much more understandable way! I really appreciate her for rec the lesson(t's very useful for review!) and did her lesson with live writing and typing on the screen.
Thank you so much, always Jaja!

In this lesson, I tried to make the value of 12 colors by myself. Jaja first taught me how to work on it and just led me focus on the activity afterwords. This activity is quite good to train my skills of observation to see the deference between tints and shadows of the color even if it's tiny deference. I think this is one of the required skill for artist. Also I can train the skill of water color painting as well. One of the great things of her lesson is that she lets me try new activities with what I learned and obtained in the previous lessons so that I can understand further and use the technic more freely. I atrongly believe that keeping in practice and trying new things with continuous review is one of the key to lead myself to put upper level. In this lesson, I focus on value, which is one of elements of art and this is what I leaned before. Through this lesson, I can understand "value" more and deeper. Thank you so much for the amazing lessons as always! Can't wait for our next lesson <3

I love the way she brings freshness and artist's mood in our lesson. She accepts the level of my art and most of the time we enjoy dying craft while expressing our opinions of what to do in the craft. So I really love it. She seems into her field and that makes me inspired because she loves what she does. And whenever I ask her questions she's very open to share her thoughts and a quite good listener as well.

Following the last lesson, We continued focusing on "line" in this lesson. What I did in the lesson is tracing hieroglyph( i think it's hieroglyph, but maybe not) with ink pen. I used disposable pen this time instead of ink pen, though, it worked well. Tracing hieroglyph itself is quite fun, especially to see my progress, it makes me excited.
This activity requires you concentration and observation. Yes, it's just a tracing lines over the tracing paper, but without concentration, your lines would be messy. And you also need to observe the original lines and the whole picture carefully and decide which point of pens you use on each line.
So I can train lots of things through this activity; concentration, observation, making right decision over right tool to use, making straight lines without rulers, good designs, and so on.
She always gives me various experiences and opportunities of arts and every activities are challenging yet so much fun! I can feel myself improving knowledge and skills little by little with her lessons.Thanks a lot for this lesson as well, Jaja! I enjoyed it a lot too and already can't wait for the next lesson! :)

Jaja is really patient and tolerant with kids while I am not. My daughter was a little impatient and rude to be honest, but at the end of the lesson, she was able to apologize. I think we learned not only to draw and paint but also how to take an art lesson with a better manner each time, which is necessary for kids to learn. I think we would like to take this lesson again!

Jaja is a great art teacher! She is a good listener. That's most important when working with kids. She has the passion for art as well as the techniques.

This is my 2nd water color lesson with Jaja. We worked on painting and making our own color wheel together and it's actually very fun! To be honest, I had been thinking that coloring the wheel was kinda piece of cake as I already knew how we create the secondary and third color, like, red and yellow =orange. But there are huge difference between just having the knowledge and Put it in practice. I leaned it... Felt it through this lesson. I need more practice and want to make better color wheel!
She always let me have those essential knowledge and practice it through challenging activity. When I stuck with it, she helps me giving some tips. I really like the way she teaches :)

This is my third drawing lesson with Jaja. She taught me the further detail of line; one of the elements of art. There were lots of discoveries as usual and she taught me what kinds of line are exist one by one with various references, her presentation always stimulates my curiosity and passion for art!
Now is the turn to try to put what I leaned from her into practice by next lesson, yes, homework! One of the most favorite parts of her lessons because every homework increases my skill for sure and so much fun at the same time. can't wait for her next lesson!

I took this lesson for the very first time. I am a beginner of water color painting so I didn't have any knowledge or technique of it... Until I took this lesson.
Ms.Jaja taught me such basics one by one in very easy-to-understand way even for beginners. the handout she prepares for students are really helpful and her demonstrations always make everything understandable. Of course I need to practice a lot everyday besides of the lesson to improve my skill, though, her lesson motivates and inspires me a lot so now I enjoy my own practice :) can't wait to take her next lesson!

It was both really fun and understandable lesson! Jaja explains everything that learners need to know and understand, so if you are enthusiastic beginner, I'm sure you have amazing time with her, and can learn a lot from her. She explains everything very specifically, deeply and logically with a lot of references, demonstrations and feedbacks. Also she motivates me so much that I "want to" practice everyday. Now I have one more reason why i practice everyday because i want to improve my skill with her teaching :) Thank you so much, jaja! I'm looking forward to taking the 2nd lesson so much!

I just completed my second lesson with CraftyJaja. This lesson was better than before because we get to draw almost anything we choose and we use different drawing rules set by the teacher haha. Some very interesting drawings haha. Sorry for making you look like a zombie Jaja :D haha

Thank you for your lesson today,JaJa!
It was very interesting to learn not only painting, but also to learn various techniques, using a ball-pen, salt, alchohol, a plastic bag, and tapping a brush was very unique and enjoyable!I would like to practice at home with my children!
Thank you so much for your fulfilling time!

Jaja is by far the best art teacher in Cafetalk. She is professional, fun, energetic and she is able to explain everything clearly and easily. She cares about her students and want them to get the best out of the class. Her water color class was super fun(You'll never know until you try it!) and well-organized.
With her teaching abilities and methods, you learn very fast and you'll feel like you are actually an artist :) I definitely recommend her to every one who wants to have a great experience with a professional great teacher.
Thank you so much again Jaja for your time and patience.
